Film also includes some general views of Granville Street showing the Towne Cinema and nearby buildings. July, 1981. MI-252

Hi, this was a very interesting and thought provoking video.

I am directing and producing a short fiction film called The Broken Record, about a dystopian future, and I was wondering if it would be okay if some footage from this video could be included in a montage sequence in the film. Please reply to me at daqvidgelmini2@gmail.com, thank you.
